Olive oil

The olive tree is rapidly returning to Brda in recent years.

Brda’s olive tree cultivators care for the health and the growth of more than 20,000 olive trees, which, for their borderland position, give top quality oil. Also, two old varieties are returning, Brda’s ‘drobnica’ and ‘črnica’, which give a smaller yield, but a very tasty olive oil.

Once the olive trees were grown in the vicinity of Šmartno, Višnjevik, Gradno and Slavče, but today we can find them almost everywhere in Brda. We can buy olive oil from the farmers from both sides of the border. Some of them are already bottling it under the brand nameUelije’.
